Yesterday’s nice, hot, weather yielded to today’s rain, with YHC and 3 PAX deciding this was no deterrent at all.
Kubota and Spit headed out through Honey Meadows, down the back trail to Kings Charter and then around the back way to the COT. YHC and Mudface rucked it (he did, I didn’t) around the high school and middle school grounds. The runners put in about 5 miles, the slower group about 3.
Spit had planned to show other runners the trails today, but the weather got in the way. Another day, hopefully. It started raining harder when YHC left home, and was a steady downpour at 5:30. Everyone was pretty drenched within a few minutes, and Spit and Kubota even brought the headlamps. Mudface hoisted the 35 pound ruck, which he reported felt a lot heavier by the end. It was great to meet Kubota, thanks for making your way up to northern burbs! We saw some lightening, but nothing too close. YHC had also forgotten he signed up for the Q, so it was lead by example, not by plan.
As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.
